2024-25 tuition, room and board rates announced

Delivering a world-class, transformative Catholic, Jesuit education and a fulfilling, dynamic co-curricular experience is our top priority at Marquette University. We undertake this important work amid ongoing, challenging economic realities for higher education and other industries.  

Inflation on goods and services, rising energy and health care expenses, and other economic pressures have created a challenging financial environment across higher education. For us, mitigating the cost of a Marquette education for our students is paramount — and it requires us to proactively manage those rising costs, as well as thoughtfully consider changes to our tuition rate.  

Undergraduate tuition and room and board rates for 2024-25  

With this in mind, the Marquette University Board of Trustees has approved a 5% undergraduate tuition increase for the 2024–25 academic year, bringing undergraduate tuition to $50,070.  

Room and board rates will also increase 5% for the 2024–25 academic year to account for improvements to residence and dining facilities, as well as the rising costs of operations, utilities, food and other products.  

Please visit marquette.edu/central for a complete listing of room and board rates and student fees.

While the release of the federal government’s FAFSA was delayed this year due to the implementation of FAFSA Simplification, families who currently receive federal financial aid are encouraged to complete the FAFSA form by Feb. 1, 2024, to ensure they are receiving all eligible aid. Please contact Marquette Central at (414) 288-4000 with any questions about the financial aid renewal process.
